However, the design approach should be different from conventional wearables due to considerations like signal-to-noise ratio and the risk of stigmatization.  ...  By balancing human factors and biosignals, we conclude that the upper arm and forearm are optimal wear locations.  ...  Then we weighted both human factors and biosignal qualities to create a wear index for different wear locations on the body. (c) Visual overview of estimating the optimal wear location.  ...

Carnival/Wearable-Art/Presence [chapter]

Laura Beloff
2009 New Realities: Being Syncretic  
Intro Carnival is said to be not only a celebration but also a critique of the existing social order.  ...  For example, carnival allowed celebrations of bisexuality and transvestitism as a release from the socially imposed sex roles and of grotesque body opposing the puritanical view of the body.  ...  (Gumbrecht, 2004) Returning to wearable technologies, one of the main characteristics is their inherent relation to the presence and the body.  ...
